    If there be no nobility of descent in a nation, all the more indispensable is it that there should be nobility of ascent—a character in them that bear rule, so fine and high and pure, that as men come within the circle of its influence, they involuntarily pay homage to that which is the one pre-eminent distinction, the Royalty of Virtue.
    —Henry Codman Potter (1835–1908)

    His farm was “grounds,” and not a farm at all;
    His house among the local sheds and shanties
    Rose like a factor’s at a trading station.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Art is a concrete and personal and rather childish thing after all—no matter what people do to graft it into science and make it sociological and psychological; it is no good at all unless it is let alone to be itself—a game of make-believe, or re-production, very exciting and delightful to people who have an ear for it or an eye for it.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
